Born in Nottingham, England before migrating to Australia as a child, Paul has been involved in performance singing for most of his life; from early days throughout school in choirs and musicals, to church choirs and then as part of a classical a Capella quartet.
It was jazz, however, that held a special allure for Paul. Having long been inspired by greats such as Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Ella Fitzgerald and Australia's own Vince Jones, this led Paul to make the transition to jazz vocalist, initially studying briefly in 2005 at Sydney’s Conservatorium of Music and then under the tutelage of jazz & blues songstress Delilah.
Supported by some of Sydney's finest musicians, and having performed with a variety of ensembles ranging from a single accompanist to a 17-piece big-band, Paul has entertained literally hundreds of audiences at weddings, functions, restaurants & bars at a variety of venues including the Opera Bar (Sydney Opera House), the ArtHouse Hotel and the 2011 Walsh Bay Jazz Festival.
Performing from an extensive repertoire of Swing, Blues and Latin jazz standards ranging from the early 20's to the swinging 50's, Paul has been described as: "Highly charismatic," as well as: "Great to listen to and seriously entertaining."
